"Gliding, swooping and diving up to nearly 60 mph, through four inversions on 3,359 feet of track, riders will feel as if they are a ray, taking flight effortlessly from sky to sea -- so close at times that the Manta's wings skim the waves," SeaWorld announced in a press release.
The park promises a queue "adorned with ray-inspired art in marble, jewels, and mosaics," as well as "face-to-fin encounters with 300 rays, as well as thousands of fish and mysterious creatures native to oceans all over the world," including "shark rays, spotted eagles rays, leopard rays, cownose rays, and oscillate river rays."
No specific opening date yet, just "summer 2009."
